At Immanuel Christian, a 3 1-2 hour marathon went seven overtimes and ended in controversy and an 82-80 win for Immanuel over New Site.
After Immanuel scored a touchdown in the seventh overtime it was good on the 2-point conversion. New Site scored the touchdown to force the seventh overtime, but was ruled out of bounds on the 2-point conversion to keep the game tied.
“And we had one touchdown called back,” New Site coach Ronnie Jackson said. “It would have been 87 our way.”
The loss dropped New Site to 0-3. Emotionally drained late Friday night, Jackson is just hoping something good comes from the loss moving forward.
“We’ve got to have a win. We have not had anything good happen for us in two years. We’re getting there. I hope that gives us the motivation to come on.”
